Smileylover Dude, i DETEST this book, as well as the rest of the JRR Tolkien books...

Noah Lindner So i would be really dumb if i thought you really liked the series? Where have i been?

Smileylover Yah, the only good thing about the series is Orlando Bloom as Legolas in the movies

Meh S But nobody seems to care that this book was a turning point in the fantasy genre. The reason why so many books are compared to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and follow up books such as the hobbit is because before that all children's fantasy books were about faries and adults in general wouldn't read fantasy.

Without these books we COULD still have fantasy, but the idea of an epic tale and emotional journey wouldn't be tied in as tightly as it is today.
